Thanks for the good post, Riversedge. Shows the contrast between tRump's egotistical bluster and reality.

Ran across this article by accident this morning, suggesting possible Arab backlash in the future.....

Link: https://www.telesurtv.net/english/news/Arab-League-Meets-to-Counter-US-Embassy-Move-20180516-0003.html

The Cairo-based Arab League will hold a meeting to discuss the “illegal” relocation of the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, MENA has reported.

The aim of the emergency meeting is to urge the league's permanent representatives “to counter the illegal decision taken by the United States of America to transfer its embassy to Jerusalem,” the organization's deputy secretary general for Palestinian affairs, Saeed Abu Ali, said.

Arab League Chief Ahmed Aboul Gheit added that the move was a “clear violation of international law.”

“The opening of the American embassy in occupied Jerusalem represents a step of utmost gravity which I do not think the U.S. administration realizes its real consequences in both the short and long-term.”


I don't have account access to MENA (Middle East News Agency). It would be interesting to read a full perspective on the rational behind the Arab League's belief that this violates international law.
